Bought: Online Whisky Auction, 8th March 2016
None I can find.
Vendée is a department in the Pays-de-la-Loire region in west-central France. It looks like this whisky miniature was produced for the town to give away to tourists. I can’t find any information about the distillery on the label, which says “Delmonteil – Alpa – Distillers”. Any additional information would be greatly appreciated.
I’ve classified this as a blend but looking at the colour I’m wondering if it’s a grain whisky like the French Glenroc I blogged about yesterday. It looks very natural instead of a blend full of E150 caramel. Whoever made it has gone to the trouble of putting on a wax seal but the label is quite amateurish. A curious dram. Once I’ve tried it I’ll come back and add some tasting notes.
